A Lesson in Color Blocking x A Monday Giveaway

Mondays are a drag, that’s why I’m giving you the chance to turn that frown upside-mother effing-down and win a color-block-bag from the fancy flamingos behind Be & D. 

When speaking of blocking, you see, color and cock are interchangeable. Why so many colors? He may wonder. Because the runway said so, you will retort.

As it happens with giveaways, there can only be one winner, but you’re all winners in my heart. So in addition to potentially acquiring a brand spankin’ new bag, I will also bestow immeasurable knowledge upon all of you. And money can’t buy you that shit. Below you will find a step-by-step photo tutorial to help you master the art of successfully cockcolor blocking. Many can color block. But can you repel while doing it? Let’s begin.

A disclaimer about these photos: Chuck and Naomi, the usual photo stars responsible for my images couldn’t make it over this weekend due to a bad case of the hangovers. Sue us, people. We are, after all, still in college. In any case, my other drunk friend Amelia offered to take some photos. So she did. Night had fallen, resolution is crummy. And while taking these photos she sang dumb songs. All in all a painful experience.

Step 1:
tank: T by Alexander Wang, shorts: Cynthia Rowley, flats: Chanel

Find bright funky shorts that wish they were Prada. Put them on.

Step 2:
blouse: Equipment
Swap out the plain old white for a punchy bright. Equipment’s spring collection offers many a successful try at emulating the Jil Sander color palette so get on it, sisters…and brothers. 
Step 3:
tights: Hue
I got an e-mail on Friday that explained the multitude of ways I remind one devoted reader of Jimney Cricket. Jimney Cricket, ey? 
Step 4:
socks: Hue
…Jimney Cricket with blue feet. As you can see, sometimes I smile like an asshole.
Step 6:
necklace: Fallon, shoes: Miu Miu
Add some sandals because if you don’t, you’re doing a disservice to your socks. Button your collar way up-top and wear a fun necklace to double as your female bow tie.
green purse: Chanel, rings: YSL, TomTom, bracelet: Giles & Bros

…By golly, you’ve done it. Now we’re both deflecting weeners far and wide. No really. I know I’ve dared you to go out and try and find a date in previous outfit renditions, but this one is Offen-sive. Captial O for dramatic effect. So…I double dare you. And now, for the giveaway.

 Sweet bag. And it can be yours! The rules are simple.

1. Follow Be & D on twitter.
2. Tell me you love me.
3. And then here below this post leave your name, e-mail address, and twitter handle (if you tweet) with a short note. Share an unusual fun fact about yourself. You know so much about me and I want to know more about you.

The winner with the weirdest knack will be announced Friday on twitter at 11AM. (This suggests you should probably follow me too.) I’ll show you a good time, that’s a promise. 

Go on now, block away.

    My most favorite fact about myself is that I met Bob Barker when I was 11 and got to spend the day on the set of the Price is Right. Yes, I spun the wheel and it is very heavy! The best part of that trip is that I met Rod Roddy before he past away and during soundcheck he called me to "COME ON DOWN"

    Good morning. I love you.
    I follow everyone in the world. (Or, more specifically, Be & D and you, my dear.)

    But, on a more serious/butt-kissing note, you're probably the only big-time style blogger who's not annoying. I guffaw like a nerd at every post, and your wit is rather biting.

    My name is Tierney. (pronounced Tyranny. It's Irish. The Irish actually spell it out phonetically as Tigernach, which is 2394023 times a cooler way to spell it. I've been trying to get people to call me TIGERNACH instead of my real name, but it's slow to catch on.)

    A random fact about me, besides having a baller name, is that I let my iPod shuffle make important life decisions for me. Like, if I'm not sure if I want to eat burritos or sushi for dinner, I hit shuffle and let Sebastian (my iPod's name) decide. If Ricky Martin's "La Vida Loca" comes on, I know I'm supposed to have a burrito. But, if Gorillaz "Dare" comes on, I should have sushi. (Because, you know, Gorillaz are cartoon and kind of anime-ish, and obviously anime=Japan=sushi.)

    Uhm. The end. Oh. My email is tierneykain [at] gmail [dot] com.

    Fact: I just moved to St. Louis from New York City, and there is no culture of man-repelling (or chasing wacky fashion) here, and that makes me so, so sad. So now I have all these boner-defying fashions and nowhere to wear them. And the weird part of it is – that has more than once made me sob uncontrollably.

    Interesting fact? God, I have a million. I have this strange bone thing where my bones aren't properly attatched to the rest of me, so they just kind of, move around if I dont excercise to keep the muscles to keep them in place. It makes me super bendy but also super freaky.

    One time I got stuck on top of a cupboard (dont ask) and had to climb down a Vicar, that was a funny day.

    I can get both my feet in my mouth – BOTH WAYS (see previous freaky bones explanation). Asin, I can do it with the legs in front of me, or my legs behind me going over my head. Now that, let me assure you, repels not only men, but humans and dogs of all kinds.

    An unusual fact, you ask? Well I have scoliosis (my spine is curved) so I have to wear a back brace. It's a thick inflexible piece of plastic that covers my entire torso, from the top of my back to the very bottom!
    It looks something like this masterpiece by Hussein Chalayan except uglier and more medical looking:
    http://cultureofdesign.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/3_hussein-chalayan1.jpg

    Sure my brace is uncomfortable and it makes bending over to pick up something on the floor nearly impossible and what not, but the biggest downside of it is that there are so many incredible clothes that I can't wear with it! When I wear it, I look more like a box/robot than a real person. Then again, it instantly turns me from a man repeller to a human repeller, which is alway a good thing! Another bonus? If you try to attack me, the joke's on you! People have tried punching the brace. I can't feel a thing but it kills their hand!

    4) I have a stuffed animal dog that I “might” sleep with me every night. My friends totally torment me about it and when I was in university I would come home to find her in provocative poses- nightmarish!! Anyways, when I was younger and having a favourite stuffed animal was more socially acceptable, my best friend and I decided to give my pup the fall's must have. It was circa 2000, and Kate Spade purses were the SHIT- Im sure you remember. My friend and I spent the afternoon sewing a mini leopard purse. The finishing touches: “Rebecca Garber” camp clothing label stitched across the front. Pooch Couture!!!

    Your blog is so brilliant, i love you!
    An unusual fact about me… I have phobia of those first days of class/work where they ask you where are you from. You know why? Because I have no idea of where I am from. It's probably because my parents couldn't stay in one place only. And besides I'm called autist in class just because I have no fear of telling stupid things i feel like talking… Anyway, there're so many weird things about me and I don't want to write the whole day off, so that's it.

    PS: you're featured on Brazilian Vogue!

    III. I skyped my dog for an hour and 14 minutes yesterday. No one else was home at my parents house but my lovely sister set up the computer in front of my dog's beddy before she left to go shopping at value village. Speaking of Value Village or Vagina village or VV I belong to an excited up and coming blog called thegreyestgarden where we post our great finds from this magical second hand store. I find our outfits can fall under the category of man repelling. Feel free to take a look.
    Keep on repelling!

    The fact I feel I am the Asian/more in debt/ not as fashionably superior (superior in a cool way, YET) version of you, my love for you naturally climbs the snowy-styled peaks of wit and flair via admiration and the onset of stalking at a very rapid pace.

    An usual fact about myself is definitely not that I used to think men's Dickie's shorts should always match your tube socks and converse, otherwise one would just look way off…but that I have a knack for coming up with the seemingly perfect way to say a store's name–to an almost harmonious onomatopoeia effect. Yes, can be subjective, but entirely true. Kind of like cargo pants.

    FACT: You have found the art and science of man-repelling. I, on the other hand, have discovered the how-to of woman-getting. Think it's the same thing? Just don anything reminiscent of Jil Sander's spring line and VOILA! Immediately men go flacid and it's lady boners every where? WRONG. Dress like Justin Bieber!!!!!!! No seriously, this is my unusual fun fact…The only time I ever have been attracted to a girl was when I saw this lesbo dressed like Justin Bieber. She even had the voice down <3 ahhhhh

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/03444847012436870991 Jennifer

    I love you and your blog and because I work in fashion, I get away with reading it as "research".

    I sometimes find that that when my outfits are not repelling enough, I can seal the deal with insult. While dressed to the Nunny nines, I once tried out for Jeopardy and during the recording I told Alex Trebek that his mother was a whore. He didn't get the SNL reference and certainly didn't like it. Repelling a gameshow icon-check.

    Fine, now I'm on twitter, following Be & D. And The Man Repeller. But I don't intend to tweet. My life is not that interesting.

    I DO love you, Man Repeller! I DO! Which is really, really strange b/c I am not your demographic. A) I am old: 38. B) I am not a man repeller; well, not intentionally. My husband would say I sport some outifts that qualify as man repelling. The guy is not a fan of prints. Or bright colors. Or chunky jewelry. He's cute, though!

    Here's me: mjpilgrim@msn.com

    Here's a weird fact about me: My husband told his college buddies he was going to marry me BEFORE he'd even met me! Even though I was probably sporting bleached-out Guess jeans with ankle zippers, a purple cropped Benetton sweater, and, sigh, loafers. Honestly, if that wasn't man repelling, what is?

    Also the fun fact…

    A few weeks ago when wearing my most repelling (read: stunning) ankle length white fur coat (think CHANEL FW2010), I walked past a homeless man and his dog.

    The dog lurched for me.

    "No Rex! That's not a giant chew toy!" He yelled and pulled him back.

    but I have extremely strong toes, so therefore when my boyfriend asks to thumb wrestle, I whip the toes out instead. (At first this was weird for him but now he deals… ha!)

    I are very speshul because I reject cupcakes, cookies and sweets of any kind like a champ, but put a bowl of green olives, peppercinis or pickles in front of me and I morph into a ravenous beast. Dirty martini? No thankkksss, just the olive juice please.

    This is my most potent form of Man Repelling, as just two nights ago my husband and I were getting frisky and the moment he smelled my salty condiment-laden breath I was banished to the bathroom for a good teeth-brushing.

    Love to you!

    Let's see. My sister was lonely so she asked if she could have a sibling – then I was born. How sad, right? I was born because someone wanted play with someone. Once I was born, I was named after one of my sister's favorite character on Full House played by the Olsen twins.

    I guess I could say I dress like the Olsen twins. Hobo, flannel shirts tied around my waist, clothes too large that they hit the ground that I walk on, does this earn man repeller points?

    First of all, and be sure I imagin you breaking your teeth trying to pronounce it, Ani Ohevet Otach! (which, of course, means 'I love you' in Hebrew).

    Now for my fun fact- i live (and have lived all my life) in a kibbutz, which is basically a small community who's living far from the big city, sustaining on her own resources, follows its own rules and shares her finances equally to all members of the kibbutz, so basically- commies. That's right. (though to be honest, it stopped being communist a few years ago but still…)
    How awesome is that? Think of all the clothes I had growing up with 50 other boys and girls who shared my clothes?! F-u-n

    2. There are alot of fashion blogs out there of people who post the same pretentious pictures with a slew of designer names underneath, and that can be deathly boring after awhile. So thats why I absolutely love you and your blog, because of you entertaining and mocking commentary of your own sense of fashion.

    4. When I was 13 (no, I did not have my first love), I wanted to be a make-up artist and haute couture dress designer (the idea of designing normal clothes absolutely bored me). Every year during movie awards so season, I would pay close attention to the dresses of the stars, which would inspire me to design my own dresses. I would bust out the notebooks and color pencils and scribble away. I did this for a few year til I realized that I completely lacked the artistic ability to draw well, because my drawings were actually quite shi*tty. Now I just content myself with reading fashion blogs.

I refused a wheelchair when I got to the hospital because they take too long to get them and then walked about 2 blocks (took about 10minutes) inside the hospital to the to the ER. There I waited 3 hours before they saw me and confirmed my broken leg. Currently awaiting broken leg to heal.

    I've decided it would be best to express my love for you in the form of a haiku:

    I really love you
    More than my shoe collection
    Platypus are rad

    And a weird (but not too weird that you just find it disturbing because who wants to give a disturbingly weird girl a cute purse, right?) yet fun fact about myself? Hmm.

    This one time, I was dueling my father, except I didn't know it was him, and he sliced my hand off. But it was okay, because I had a robotic one made.

    Okay. Yeah–so that might have been part of the plotline to Star Wars. Maybe.

    For realsies now: I can sing the fifty states in alphabetical order. With jazz hands–for much needed pizazz. Also, I live in Canada. Not that it would be any cooler if I lived in the US. But still.

    Hello, Man Repeller. I love you. I love your blog. I love this giveaway.

    I didn't really care about fashion until a few years ago, when I began working with marine mammals. I got so tired of smelling like fish all the time, being sweaty and covered in manatee poop- and only wearing huge t-shirts and mens swim trunks and tevas. I quietly rebelled against this indignity by learning more and more about fashion through fashion blogs such as this one, and by being the only one not wearing flip-flops at a work related social function. The horror!

    2) Elisabeth (with an "S")Zuerker, Ezuerker@gmail.com, @ezlistening
    3)2 fun facts: a.I'll be using some of my very little vacay to do spring break with my sisters/parents in… NYC (from Dallas) on 3/11 so convenient for me to just pick that little purse up from ya or whatever- no shipping required! At a public location of course- I'm not a bad person but I figure you might be hungover again and coffee is helpful. b. My face is at least 40% titanium, I sometimes set of metal detectors when going through airport metal detectors which makes traveling all the more fun and I think I am on some TSA list so I always get a little extra search loving. Plus my sister has Mono, we are going to be the most fun people trying to get into NYC :)

    My fun fact: I walked to work last week and wondered what the odd clunking sound was, I looked down and realised I had odd shoes on, one flat the other with a small heel making the clunking noise, shoes were different colours as well…I think traditional man repelling,just get up late and throw anything on…..alison@gormanmail.net

    fun fact: i only buy articles of clothing
    that smell of old ladies, have cig holes,
    cat hair embedded upon it,
    don't fit perfectly,
    are too big,
    are out of style,
    not in this decade,
    and are still on the rack for a reason.
    i whole heartedly adore taking something,
    by definition, not beautiful, and
    gracefully wearing it with confidence.

    Strange Fact: When I was born my mother decided it would be best to name me after nursery rhymes. My first name is Jill ( Jack and Jill went up the hill…etc) and my middle name is Piper (Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers..etc) I think Mother Goose might be my Moms hero and I feel as though a color blocked purse would look fantastic on THE nursery rhyme mascot (AKA me).

    Now, for a fun fact or two. First, I went to circus camp when I was younger. This included "trapeze", rolling on top of large wooden balls, and dressing like a clown. I have also become rather proficient at making balloon animals and hats and the like. So I potentially have the chance to become a very stylishly dressed human-repeller (because nothing is more human repelling than circus people and clowns)

    As for unusual- today is my birthday! Its hardly strange but exciting to me nonetheless. Im turning 22. Much less thrilling than 21, but my plan is to colour block my bod, get saucy with some pals and lay in the snow so everyone can see how well the colours pop. Here I come hypothermia!

    This is just one of the many "interesting" facts about me, well actually my family. Don't know if it will interest or intimidate you, but if it helps me win the bag I'm ok with either. JK I'm not down with intimidation nor are any of my living relatives, if you catch my drift. My great great uncle Joseph "Iron Man" Ardizzone was the first recognized Boss of the LA Crime Family and was "disappeared" in 1931. Since my great grandpa viewed his brother's connections with shame we were told very little about him. Then a few years before my grandpa died he shocked us by saying he knew who offed his uncle but then refused to name the person only revealing that it was a family member. What really happened continues to remain a great family mystery to this day.

    In the words of David Cassidy – I THINK I LOVE YOU. I think you a filling the void of wit without the 'I just like to wear clothes- insert hazed light- insert- self promotional awkward side overhead photo'. You provide context… on top of your content.

If nothing else, Ian Flemming and Bond at large is worth an entry. You could give new meaning to The Bond Woman – sport the ultimate tux whilst having a dirty martini.

    I've broken my heels twice. The second time, I shattered my right heel and the
    doctors had to put 8 metal screws and 2 metal plates in my foot to hold my heel
    bone together. Recently, one of the metal plates shifted and I had to have all
    the metal removed (I am sickly good on crutches). Ironically, I can't wear
    flats. Wearing heels takes the pressure/ weight off my actuals heel bones so
    they are much more comfortable. Often, I am caught wearing heels in the most
    inappropriate situations (I challenge anyone to a race in stilettos). Sidebar,
    tear that I cannot partake in flatforms. Also of note, the first time I broke
    my heels I was jumping a 16 foot fence to go skinny dipping. The second time, I
    was in Czech Republic and I jumped out a window to get to a rooftop (FUNNNN
    plane ride home). I love you and am living proof of man repellers with game.

    Unusual Fact:
    I now live in Washington, DC and have been trying to bring Man Repelling to our Nations Capital by writing (my blog) and leading by example (color blocking — I literally just wrote about color blocking on my blog too), mixing prints, and buttoning my top all the way up). Although this may not seem unusual to most, it is VERY odd in DC. People truly in love with fashion are few and far between, and I quite often feel like I am the only one. I would LOVE to rock this bag in DC and show them how it is done!

    Man Repelling-ly Yours,

    i enjoy this blog and have been following it for quite some time. I feel you take it to far sometimes (a lot of the time). I love practically everything as a solo piece, or with 2 or 3 other crazy/different things; but what is the point in making it go from looking uniquely attractive, to ugly, repelling, and often painful to look at?? Most clothing articles that us women, who are knowledgeable about fashion, are already "man-repelling" solo. 6 of these articles put together just gets repulsive (most of the time). I love to mix and mismatch my clothes; but they still reflect my unique, artistic, classy, pretty, feminine, and fashionably conscious style. AND trust me, the men scatter.

    I'm perceived as the man-repeller of my high school and I'm 16 going on 17. The "best dressed" girl at school is known for wearing the shortest and tightest dress, rather than my sweet combat boots paired with leopard harem pants.

    I've been a hard core coffee drinker (no judging) since I was 3, when my grandfather introduced me to my secret obsession, yet I still manage to be 5'7 and (hopefully) still growing.

    Hi hi hi!

    1.) Much love to you, your blog, and your interestingly decorated house. Seriously mad props to that interior designer, I can see the influence in your creative repelling. Ah parents houses eh. My parents chose to go the las vegas hotel carpets with stainless-steel-everything and whimsical light fixture route. The ceiling fan in the living room looks like an old-timey small plane's propeller… it freaks me out standing under it when it's on.
    ANYHOO your blog cracks me up and I read it out loud to my roommates whenever they're around. Thank you for the belly laughs. Good workouts.

    2.)Fun fact about me: I've seen UFOs before and that shit was freaky. More relevant to the tasks at hand: repelling: in grade four, for most of the winter, the only outfit I would wear was a black long-sleeve long-legged leotard with one of three pink knit vests, neon socks, junk-jewelery necklace and bangles, and sometimes for extra flair a floppy poorboy jean hat. It was 1993 and going to the bathroom was a bitch in that outfit but I looked fabulous. I would only pose for pictures with my hands on my hips and a crazy bug-eyed grin. (I didn't want to blink so would open my eyes extra wide when I knew a pic was being taken.)I kind of want to resurrect this look.

    3.) My name is Karla. Email karlamummery@gmail.com

    4.) OMG that bag. drool.

    i had a childhood fixation with Salvador Dali. i called him "the chicken man," and made up a song about him. Maybe I'll share that with you later. Anyway, like Pee Wee Herman, he is excellent man repelling inspiration.

    in the vein of man repelling, i'll tell you about my childhood man repelling tendencies. while a man-repelling toddler is actually probably a good thing i've realized that i'm no further in adulthood to attracting real life fellas, probably because of my early childhood. my most favorite accessory was wearing my food in my hair. the process is somewhat difficult, comparable to looking like a stylish beach bum (looks simple but in reality takes much honing of skill), but involves the steady rubbing and building up of cake, pasta, potatoes, jello, peanut butter and other tempting treats. after that had been accomplished i'd put on my woolen onesie and zip it down to just below my belly button. i'd slick my hair back just a bit more and walk around pretending to be elvis, a man that wasn't even around when i grew up because i was only born in 1990. i know, such a poser. whatever. i do what i want.

    As for a quacky fact. I have many, but I will just say that living in the midwest many people find it odd I won't go sledding. Most think it's because I'm scared. FALSE. Really it's because when I was 7 I wore white pants to sled and they were ruined. The end.
    P.S. you're "I'm only human. Psych. I'm dancer" quote in one of last weeks posts caused me to about pee my pants with happiness..at work. in front of customers and coworkers. it was fab

    You're the bomb. And even though bombs aren't all that cool, you are. If that doesn't sound lame, I don't know what does. (Hopefully that embarrassing statement sounds like an 'I love you,' because it is.)
    My name is Jessica Godfrey, my e-mail is jessica.k.godfrey@gmail.com (creativity just seeps out of my pores), and my twitter is @jessicakgodfrey (again, just SEEPING).
    Fact: I come from a small-ish town in Canada (South of Whistler, north of Vancouver), and it is one of the most beautiful places ever. Despite this, though, it is hard to repel men and get away with it. I do it anyway. I also thing my ex-boyfriend dumped me because he just couldn't handle the weaponry that is my jewellery.

    Oh and I followed all that stuff on Twitter, too.
    Have a lovely day!

Dress code was pretty professional but my favorite fashion memory was dressing up as my brother when we had to work together on Halloween. Pinstripe pants, bright button down, completely different color sweater, mismatched socks, magic marker tattoos (covered respectfully with long sleeves)semi-birth control glasses. My brother also has great fashion sense, and I love him too!

    Greetings, mother man repeller!

    This is Xizi from Eye for Detail (http://xiziluo.wordpress.com/) and I am a teen fashion blogger/reporter. My e-mail is luo.xizi@yahoo.com and you can sing a long to my tweets at @XiziLuo.

    An unusual fact about me? I read your blog religiously, which shouldn't be too unusual considering how hilarious of a writer you are!

    But besides that, I think the strangest fact about me is that I have eaten a LOT of creatures. I've had shark fins, bird's nests, fried scorpions, silkworm cocoon kebabs, maggots, crickets, camel toes, cow stomachs, duck tongue, fungi-inflected worms, ear-shaped fungus that grows on trees, hair-like desert plants, dogs (yes, I've had a taste of man's best friend!), pig blood in jelly-cubes, either crocodile or alligator, chicken feet, pig ears, sea cucumbers, cactus pears, lotus seeds, grilled snakes, and a quite a few other things that I can't remember.

    I enjoy eating raw (e.g. frozen salmon straight out of the bag) and I like to constantly expand my epicurious appetite!

    I am also a member of PETA.

    But above all, I WANT THAT BAG (!!!) to carry extra-large tampons that I can claim is for art projects. Gotta ward off those teen boys!

    When I was about 7, my brother was 4 and we liked to swim like fools in our backyard pool. My mom didn't let us keep food near the pool because gd forbid we get it in the pool. So you can imagine my surprise when my mom asked me to pick up the "popcorn" in the pool near my brother. I swam over to my brother in my gold lame one piece with the belly cut out and tied on the sides. I grabbed the "popcorn" and swam to the edge of the pool. I took a closer look at what my dear mother had asked me to pick up and could you believe it, it was POOP. Shit. POOP. Shit. Poop. I picked up my little brother's shit from the pool and held it in my hand. And if you made me share that horrific story and don't gift me a bag, I'm gonna go all sharpie on my Kooba bag from a few years ago.

    short story: I used to temp for a network late night host, facilitating with audience load and spill. and to be a member of the audience, our American guests had to wait upwards of three hours to watch a live taping. so, to pass the time, and keep the crowd in remotely high spirits: I told stories. to whoever would listen! and without fail, our patrons would exclaim that I was JUST like Ellen DeGeneres. or, given my short haircut, Brooks Brothers pants suit, oxfords, and the sweaters I inherited from my grandfather that peaked out from my blazer, they would mistake me for a young boy.

I also enjoyed tying my cat wig away from my face from my favorite velour, leopard print scrunchie from Limited Too.

And I've been told they make good anniversary gifts, but let me tell you now, some menfolk do not find them grand (in other words, they repel the men without a sense of humor. And no it was not me who discovered this on my own, but a group of us, who received in return a lovely "what the hell is this" and firm placement into the friend zone as a group). Also, it took so much strength and thought not to write the date and my class period after my name. I am so clearly in Hugh school. Which of course means that when I dint spend enough time dressing to rpel, mama nature is there to help.

    Weird fact about me: I am bad at eating. No no no…it's not what you're thinking. I live for food like…I think I can probably eat my entire body weight and then go back for seconds + a beer. I just get so damn EXCITED about the whole business of eating that food tends to sort of…get places I did not intend for it to get. I was unaware of just how disgusting my messyness was until my best friend and her boyfriend equated the way I eat to the way the foxes eat in Wes Anderson's "The Fantastic Mr. Fox". If you've seen it, you'll understand. Also, I got lasagna in my eye the other day. Point made? Alright.

But if that wasn't enough to chase the men away, you can be sure that A little salad hanging out of the old pie hole on a date seals the deal. And when I say "the deal" I do not mean the sexy deal. The deal is that no man hands will try to get inside this utility shirt and I'll be going home alone, with a stomach full of deliciousness.

    I recently just discovered your blog, & can i say how lovely it is ? it's exactly the type of fashion drug i need daily. I love your blog & the individuality style you have.
    My email is hawaiiangyaru@gmail.com and my name is Anna Ye. I don't have a twitter but i follow you daily regardless.
    An unusual and quirky fact about myself is that everytime i remodel my closet, i like to lie out all my clothes, especially the pieces i love the most & adore them looking at them from head to toe, admiring them really. It is really weird but I tend to do it without being too aware of it.
    I love my clothes

    i admit i have a boyfriend, though he is 100% pro man-repelling since it ensures that he is the only one who knows what's "under this." he does, however, think it's weird that sometimes i'd rather amorously ogle at women in strange outfits than hang out with him. go figure.

    fun factoids:
    i can lick my elbow. it's supposed to be physically impossible. so basically, i'm a mutant. like x-men.
    it is also true that some (read: most) of my outfits are inspired by superhero attire. because neon blue and yellow jumpsuits with giant "x"es across the front are both metaphoric and man repellin'. alliteration.

    Thank you for giving me courage to man repel in the South. In Tennessee wearing anything besides sperry's and something with your initials on it in case you forget who you are because you are dressed in varying shades of everyone else is considered insane. If you came here, I'm pretty sure you would be detained in the airport. Thank you for giving me the courage to wear my fur, patterns and leather on a daily basis.

Due to my clumsiness I have coffee stains in clothes that are expensive to dry-clean.

    FF/ Fun Fact: Being that I am likely comment 3,756, I guess I have to spice things up for the next thousand comments you have to read. I was kinda a tomboy teenager and volunteered to help my dad trim our treehouse tree. I mistakenly transformed a branch into a missile that landed on my ladder and sent me flying into the air and onto the ground, breaking my two wrists. I don't know how I didn't pass out. I didn't feel any pain– I just couldn't move my hands at all. Ever since the surgery, my wrists can do this funny cracking noise if I move them the right (or wrong) way. I can dance to them. It's like I have maracas for wrists. Or do I have Moroccan wrists? EEEP, do they have a passport?

I was really into lobsters at the time (I still don't really know why), so I used my first and middle initials and then "lobster." Little did I know that this would condemn me to a life of being the girl who gets given shit with lobsters on it, FOREVER. Name a thing, and I probably have one with a lobster on it. Hat? YUP. Shirt?

    I wish I could just give you a compilation of all my go to facts. I play a lot of ice breakers.

    I don't know if you are vulger and crude… I am vulger and crude… so I'm just going to let you know. Last night I watched the best S&M; documentary ever. I learned about rubber fetishes and submission. I think I may have found my career– dominatrix. Mom doesn't need to know that I am not applying to law school.
    Oh and I am attracted to movie stars in their old age… like Christopher Walken. So tasty. So classy. He is my man. I feel like the two facts go together.

    My name is Mariana Shtukina and I recently heard about your blog from my fashionista friend here at Scripps College. You are an inspiration to us all, we go to a woman's college and man repelling is what we do best. A fun fact,hmmm, im currently rehearsing for the Vagina Monologues where I play a Russian ex-lawyer turned lesbian dominatrix. I am from Russia so it's easy to pull of the accent and Eve Ensler (the author) just signed the whip I'm using in the show.

    Dear(est) ManRepller,

    I love you, and am IN love with you.

    Not only do I repel men with my clothing, but with my secret hobby, which is playing Dungeons and Dragons. My character is a 12 year old girl named Amy Smith who's an ace with a bow and arrow and who can talk to plants and animals. Oh, and she/I/cries with lonliness has a snake familiar named Biter. Also my previous character, a sorceress named Mila, got her head bashed in by a flesh golem.
    So yeah, if that's not interesting, at least I should be rewarded for estranging the last bastion of the man-repellent…the internet.
    Love forever,
    Vanessa Di Palma/Amy/Mila

    Unusual Fact: despite being fearless in many ways (dressing like a rainbow every day, moving to England without ever visiting, regularly buying shoes that will, in all likelihood make my feet bleed, etc.) I carry the flame of fear in my heart for one thing. MOTHS. Like tiny birds of death, made of beguiling and sinister powder, that are attracted to human scent and will eat your most loved clothes. They are evil, EVIL.

    4) Fun fact that I'd like for you to know (regardless of bold handbags): I work as a model, and despite having both a mother and sister in fashion (or perhaps because of it), I never had any style confidence (I appreciated the art of style but never embodied it) — until I started reading your blog. Now I never leave the house without at least three layers (not including coat), love mixing patterns (did double floral today which i'm still not sure is cool but i liked it) — and I swear I'm taken more seriously in the industry because of it! So thanks!

    [also, when my eyebrows were bleached for a shoot, i kept them because i loved them even though several men told me that i looked like an alien.]

    I love your attitude and blog because
    1. I had to wear a mid-calf pleated polyester/wool blend navy uniform skirt until I was eighteen and even though I hated it, I also loved it because it was so bad, it was good. I feel you can relate.
    2. I made it to the high school dress code handbook for those tattoo-wire necklaces that were popular in the late 90s. After me, they were banned.
    3. My grandmother gave me a pin that a friend's husband said to me in all in-credulousness, "that is the most hideous piece of jewelery I have ever seen." It is silver and huge and depicts a carp jumping out of the water. The carp looks like it's in agony. It was handmade in Mexico in the 40s.
    4. You give me confidence to wear the stuff I love that the general masses don't understand.

    FUN FACT (all caps because that's how fun it is): I met a 18yrs old French billionaire, heir of the French chain grocery store, all because he liked my floral jumpsuit covered butt sitting at the curb on the street drinking straight out of the wine bottle because we were poor American exchange students at the time. That floral jumpsuit rescued me and my friends from the street corner (literally!) and got us unlimited drinks that night.

    I follow you and B & D on twitter, love you of course, I'm following your blog aren't I? I've told many a man and woman about your blog and frankly a lot of them don't get it, but that's when i roll my eyes, walk away and assume that they are probably repelled by me anyway, their loss.
    Fun Fact: My parents have always let me pick out my clothes. 1st shirt: hot pink, with a cat on it that read "Do The Watusi!" Everyone asked me what "The Watusi," was and I didn't know, nor did I care. Needless to say, I spent kindergarten chasing the boys around the playground and not vice versa. That year my parents gave me $100 and let me choose my own gift. I chose a white, faux fur coat, what else! They should have known they had a little man repeller on their hands. I was also sporting the tights as pants trend around the same time, way before the gaga. See the link for a photo, and yes, that is a smurfs shirt, always in style. http://www.facebook.com/album.php?id=201406657&aid;=2180205#!/photo.php?fbid=638093719925&set;=a.633546223145.2180205.201406657&theater;

    3. In sixth grade I met my true love. His name was Patrick, he had red hair and was so intelligent I just wanted to listen to him talk all day. Part of me strongly believes that if he came back to find me today, I'd let him sweep me off my feet and take me anywhere. But anyway, the fun fact is what I wore back then to accompany my braces and frizzy brown hair that resembled a yield sign from the back: lace bobby socks with white k-swiss sneakers and a glorious Catholic school uniform. Can you say #Manrepellerposterchild? Not sure what part of that decision was mine and what was my mother's. Nevertheless, we do learn a lesson from the strange conglomeration of articles I decided to clothe myself with and it is that no matter what level of man repeller you currently prounce about upon, there will always be someone you will fall in love with… and who will fall in love with you right back.

    Fun Fact: For my Bat Mitzvah I begged my mom to purchase over 100 copies of Sisqo’s album that featured “Thong Song” so it could be part of the giveaways offered. While I am sure that this did not go with my “Tiffany & Co.” theme (I know, yet another embarassing fact about this coming of age story) I was totally convinced that this giveaway item would defiinitley make my Bat Mitzvah cooler than the other kids at my Temple. Obviously, I knew how to repel men from a young age, snobery and poor taste in music. :)

    I love you in all your man-repelling glory and it has caused me to become man-repelling too. Today, I came to the revelation that my baggy harem pants looked like a diaper. I had a flash of insecurity and quickly ignored it as I thought, "What would the Man-Repeller do? Well, she'd OWN that diaper." Anyway, you are a huge inspiration to me and all my toes on my feet are the same size (except the big toe).

    I've noticed a correlation between how well I'll get along with someone and whether or not they eat their finger food the proper way. How dare you bitches eat your wings with forks…and don't even get me started on people who cut their fries.

    **disclaimer- this correlation also applies to cilantro. What's so bad about it?

    First, I have some SERIOUS love for you. SERIOUSLY.

    Second, I'm a lesbian! So doesn't make me the best man-repeller? …Or the worst? I'm woman-repeller, regardless.

    Unusual fact: I have a completely irrational fear of Bigfoot. When I was little I watched this TV special about Bigfoot and it scarred me for life. For years I had reoccurring dreams where I was lost in the woods and Bigfoot was a-comin' for me and there was nothing I could do. Plus, I live in the Northwest, so Bigfoot is like a THING here. And several years ago I took the train from Montana to Seattle and it travels through some really remote areas, and all I could do was stare out the window and think, "Where are ya, buddy?" Furthermore, whenever I am camping and hear a strange noise my mind immediately jumps to, "Bigfoot?!" I know that it's COMPLETELY irrational, and I actually don't even believe he exists, but I can't help the crazy.

    Man, so many things to love in one post — Be & D is pretty rad, and you, Man Repeller, are absolutely the bee's knees.

    Now about myself: I spent the majority of my childhood Saturday mornings at the local skate rink because I was (wait for it…) a synchronized ROLLER SKATER! Leotard? Check. High bunchy socks? Check. Scrunchie? CHECK! My favorite routine went to the song "Do Re Mi" from the Sound of Music — gangsta!!

    First, here is an extensive, verbose explanation of how much I adore you and your blog (for the record, I love me some SAT words almost as much as I love a good Navajo print): I'm working on getting a blog started at the moment, and as a general rule I try not to read too many others so that I'm not tempted to copy them and can instead let my own uniquely stupid brand of humor shine through. Oh Man Repeller, you are the exception to my policy. I can't stop reading! I may have to work extra hard so as not to subliminally copy you, but it's worth it!

    And a fun fact about me: In my formidable years as a pre-teen, I showed dairy goats. I was a goat showing champion, and I have the trophies with little gold goats on top to prove it. Whip that fun fact out when speaking with a man friend and consider him repelled. As if my extensive collection of brightly colored tights hasn't already done the trick.

    Unusual fact: well, i have plenty. Two of my weirdest:

    1. My last name is Billen. which means literally "ass" in dutch (my native language). i've got the name of my mother, the last name of my father is Voeten, which means literally "feet". talking about being born for luck.
    2. I've had this weird habit. when i was younger, i talked in pairs. That means that every word had to be even, like "coat" is ok, but "skirt" isn't, since there are five letters instead of 4 or 6. I can tell you, at that time, having a conversation was a real challenge.Especially since i can be a real chatterbox.

    1. I follow them…and you, now.
    2. i must love you, i actually opened a twitter account. i'll tell twitter to send a thank you card.
    3. so i think i deserve the bag, because let me remind you of an awkward email conversation we had last week. you replied "OMG now that is something special" to the picture of my senior thesis (the head piece, ya – that one)… i then, as you may recall, wrote back telling you it was yours! get this, although i may or may not have begged you to wear it, you could have seen it as winning a contest of mine! no? no? ok, maybe i did seem like a creeper at that point then (hence, no reply), so in that light maybe you should pity me and give the bag to me so that at least i can say "hey, i got a purse out of it" if you actually think i'm a creeper and for the future humiliation of you potentially mentioning how creeperesque that email was like you did in that one article about the guy who asked you to marry him via twitter? or was it facebook? either way, i think you gave him a bag. i know it.

    if that isn't sufficient, i give you my best fun fact: when i was little i could do arm pit farts like a pro, a literal pro. i could recreate any known fart: short ones, loud ones, putt putt puttering ones, juicy ones (ya, i said it) or a combo of them all. i could do pitches and get this, i could also do it with my KNEES! ya, you read that right. KNEES. my mother said if i continued to do it i wouldn't find a man.. a little man repeller from the get go! and i know you're probably wondering if i could still do it, maybe not, but if i win the bag i will send you a video. YES, a video. that'll just add to my creeper-ness? at least it'll all be a good story, right?!

    do it.

    2. I obviously love you. It's obvious because what is not to love? I follow both the Man Repeller and Leandra Medine on Twitter. Can't get more creepy than that (unless I sent you a lock of my hair — to far?).
    3. @Engthusiast, shaun.engstrom@gmail.com. So this weekend I saw Karl Lagerfeld in Colette in Paris. It was the highlight of my life. It was even more outrageous because I was unintentionally dressed exactly like him (white shirt buttoned all the way up, black pants, black blazer and bolo tie). Couldn't remember enough french to ask for a picture but I did follow him and his assistant down half a block until he got into his car.
    Unusual fact: An earwig crawled into my ear when I was 10 and hung out there for about a day until I yelled "I love you hostess" at a hostess truck driving by and it crawled out. I blame that little bug for eating up all the man getting parts of my brain. Although, to be fair, the bolo ties may have something to do with the lack of peen in my life.

    SO I was in Japan when I was 15 for a class trip. It was around 1am and I was desperately hungry. My friends and I couldn't leave to roam the streets for food so we decided to sneak into the kitchen of the monastery to see what we could find. We found some rice. There were five of us in on the scheme but clearly not enough food for everyone. We decided to make it a game: streak around the monastery grounds= rice.

    RAN INTO A MONK… our school has never been aloud to go back to that monastery but I didn't go hungry!
    Side note: I would do the same for this bag… and you clearly! (lady boner inducing, I know)

    as I reflect, I realize I hath no shame. word out. ^_^

    one time in 5th grade my grandma gave me this expired gum and I was chewing it at a high school volleyball game and it turned to liquid in my mouth. when i told me mom i was going to the bathroom it started dripping out of my mouth and people started yelling to everyone that i was throwing up.
    i was so embarrassed i tried to tell them it was just my gum but it just made it worse.
    then when i tried to clean off my face it had dried and the paper towels stuck all over my face also.
    most embarrassing, moment, ever.

    my unusual factoid… When I wear shoes that I love (which is most days), I always like to watch my feet as I walk. This creates two problems: I look like a fool and I run in to many a wall/door/person, which of course reiterates the first problem. But it's worth it.

    Now that that's taken care of… I taught myself how to tie my shoes because no one else could teach me. I was in kindergarten, and my smartassness pissed the teacher off like no other.

    You're absolutely stellar and freaking hilarious, please be my life coach. I wish all college students were as fashionable as you are. I guess the flood of sweatpants and oversized sweatshirts that dominate my campus are man repellers, but…

    My name's Atira (atira.richards@gmail.com) and when I get really tired, my eyeballs squeak audibly when I rub them. I thought it was just an internal squeak that only I could hear until my room mates wondered where the loud squeaking was coming from. With the onslaught of finals week, it's become even more apparent–Spring Break come sooner.

    Your blog helps me get through my horribly dull job where no one appreciates any of my fashion choices.

    Fun fact: I've taken man repelling to a new level today with the pink eye I caught from Mardi Gras on Bourbon Street and the entire bag of Pizzeria Pretzel Combos I just ate.

    I adore you. Sometimes, before we go out, my boyfriend asks if my outfit is "man repellent." To which I reply, IF YOU HAVE TO ASK THEN IT SURELY IS NOT, FOOL. And then I put on another watch (avec une calculatrice) or some confusing tights so there is no question about the ability to stifle libidos all around.
    get at me, girlette–that purse needs me.

    Fun Fact: I "met" Lumiere (yes, the candelabra) from Beauty and the Beast when I was 7. My mom's best friend (z''l) was a theater actress who would move from job to job between St. Louis and New York. One time she was in a play with Jerry Orbach, the voice of Lumiere, and after dinner at my house gave him a call to chat. My mom convinced her friend to convince Jerry to talk to me and my siblings as Lumiere. Let me tell you, when Lumiere tells you over the phone that it's past your bedtime you go to sleep REAL quick! To this day it's still my most starstruck moment and solidified my love of that movie and Belle; I guess that explains why I'd rock a peasant shirt under a jumper :)

    I've hated holes since I was a child. Like holes in walls and… basically anything. They freak me out. When I first went to my fiance's house I freaked because it looked like someone ran around with a hammer and nail and then another person ran around after them pulling all the nails out of the wall forcibly with their wild man beast hands. Yeah… I need therapy for this.

    Fun facts about me: I'm often mistaken for a high schooler, to the point where I'm often carded at R-rated flicks despite the fact that I'm 25 years old. My mother decided to make my middle name Lauren after Ralph Lauren himself. Also, I can pick things up with my toes, and my loved ones affectionately refer to this action as showing off my monkey feet. Oh yes, nothing sexier than that.

    Unusual fun fact: I was once a hotel maid. If I could sum up the best (and by best, I mean absolutely worst) of it, I had to clean a room infested with dog worms, a room covered in skin from a psoriasis guest, and a room where someone died…two days after my grandma passed away. Then, I went on to become the "Tray Girl" at a nursing home. My duties included getting prune juice and cottage cheese for the elderly.

    That's boner killer story telling at its greatest.

    1) Love you – the first time I read about you was in an issue of Vogue while on a plane and my boyfriend looked over and said why would any girl think that outfit was attractive – I laughed at how perfect his comment was – been in love with your blog since then.

    2) @IMaeBe, i.belobradic@live.com

    3) First, let me preface this with that I'm still at the office and not making much sense anymore because I haven't stopped working before 1am in about 2 weeks (very sleep deprived). One weird fact about me {maybe not super weird} but I love fashion but never seem to notice people's clothes unless they're amazing – what I do notice is amazing couples – I guess that's the hopeless romantic in me? But how great is a fantastic, adorable couple. I don't think it's that weird – but many of friends do considering how much I love fashion.

    This week, while partaking in some extracurricular beverage consumption in my fabulous faux-fur vest (a.k.a. Bear costume) at the bar where I normally work, my manager took one look at me and said, "What the hell are you wearing?" I shed a single tear of joy.
    I have a strange inkling that this type of reaction is the reason I have been single for almost five years now….
    Oh Repeller of the Male Species: I love you, I love you, I love you, and where you go I'll follow, I'll follow, I'll follow, You'll always be my true love, my true love, my true love, from now until forever-

    Unusual fact: well, currently I am sitting at Milburn House at the Universtiy of Warwick, as well as having a love for fashion I am very passionate about Science. The two things go hand in hand, no? Anyway, I am kind of obsessed with the metal Osmium and in about 40 minutes time I am going have an attempt at some Osmium NMR. you see, Osmium has two nuclei which are nmr active but the 189 is quadrupolar and therefore yields a very broad signal and so for this reason I use the 187 nucleus. The 187 has a spin of a 1/2and therefore yields sharp signals over a very wide chemical range. But there is still a BIG problem, the 187 nucleus has extremely low sensitivity and therefore we have to use indirect detection via proton coupling–

    Oh man repeller, I almost missed the deadline! I've been mulling over which unusual fact to tell you for a few days now, and I think I've finally found the right one. Here it goes: when I was a kid, my mom and I spent Christmas in Argentina. While we were there, we picked up a rather strange and mostly illegal habit…

    …are you ready….?

    ….. am I killing you with the suspense…..?

    Just kidding, I won't overdo it with the ellipses. That would just be rude.

    The habit is streaking! Every New Years Eve, Argentinean women wear a brand new pair of pink undies for good luck. If you're really gung-ho, you can also carry a suitcase with you to your New Year's party, which is supposed to ensure that you will travel in the New Year. If you're cray-cray like my mom and I, you can walk around the block carrying your suitcase and wearing nothing but your fab new panties and a fur coat. We’ve now extended this tradition to our friends, so every New Years, without fail, you’ll see a group of ladies walking half naked around my block. While this may seem like a staged and desperate man-getting event on my part, or a desperate cry to the New Years Eve gods that someone, SOMEONE might see my pink panties other than my mother who bought them for me, this event has in fact never snagged me a boi. Last year I did catch a cold though! It’s a start, I guess.
    With love,
    Emily Buck

    interesting fact about me: I make wearable art/jewelry out of recycled building materials and found items. Nothing confuses a man more than building supplies on a necklace. Depending on the man he is either totally intrigued and wants to take you straight to his place from home depot or he says, "what? why?" unless he is Marc Jacobs then he does neither of these things but instead make your own nut necklace.

    10 Aturan Bergaya "Color-Blocking"

    Tren fashion paling diminati pada 2011 ini adalah color blocking. Pekan mode untuk koleksi spring/summer 2011 menampilkan para model dalam warna-warna cerah, seperti terlihat pada koleksi Jil Sanders, Missoni, dan Diane von Furstenberg (DVF). Namun, bagaimana menerapkan gaya ini dalam penampilan sehari-hari tanpa terlihat terlalu meriah? Berikut cara memadukannya.

    Kombinasi warna yang tepat
    Tidak semua warna tampak pas ketika dipadupadankan. Anda perlu memilih kombinasi warna yang tepat untuk mendapatkan efek yang maksimal. Warna-warna yang bisa ditabrakkan antara lain pink dan ungu, oranye dan biru, merah dan pink, serta biru cerah dan merah. Koleksi Jil Sander untuk spring/summer 2011 bisa ditiru untuk mendapatkan kombinasi warna yang asyik.

    Semakin terang semakin baik
    Jika Anda mengenakan color blocking dari kepala hingga kaki, pastikan warna-warnanya secerah mungkin. Warna-warna pucat dan pastel akan terkesan nanggung, tak peduli sebanyak apa pun warna yang Anda tabrakkan.

    Jins selain biru dan hitam
    Item yang bisa dilibatkan dalam permainan warna adalah jins. Anda menemukan jins berwarna merah, hijau, atau pink? Jangan ragu memakainya. Apabila Anda kurang berani memakai warna-warna yang terang untuk jins, coba aplikasikan koleksi spring/summer 2011 dari Isabel Marant. Padukan dengan sweater polos atau t-shirt warna kelabu muda.

    Kombinasikan bahannya
    Agar warna terang yang Anda pilih tidak terkesan terlalu panas, pilih bahan sutra, satin, dan taffeta dalam warna-warna terang. Contohnya seperti pada koleksi spring/summer 2011 dari Diane von Furstenberg. Kombinasi bahan ini akan menambahkan kesan glamor pada penampilan Anda, dan memberikan kombinasi warnanya yang terang terasa lebih mewah.

    Satu naungan warna
    Jika Anda tidak cukup berani menabrakkan warna, Anda masih dapat mengenakan tren ini dengan memakai satu warna dari naungan warna yang sama dari atas ke bawah. Contohnya, Anda bisa memakai gaun maxi berwarna kuning cerah, pink, atau merah cerah, seperti pada koleksi spring/summer 2011 dari Michael Kors dan Lanvin.

    Padukan dengan "t-shirt" putih
    Show dari Moschino Cheap and Chic memperlihatkan celana panjang warna cerah dengan t-shirt warna putih yang simpel. Pilih kaos dari bahan katun dan sutra yang akan bertumpuk dengan baik. Bahan ini akan melengkapi celana panjang atau rok warna cerah dengan cantik.

    Aksesori berwarna
    Tak mau mengenakan pakaian yang serba berwarna cerah? Kenakan saja satu atau dua aksesori dalam warna-warna yang menyolok. Misalnya, clutch warna pink, sepatu warna kuning neon, gelang biru, atau belt oranya. Seru, kan? Aksesori itu akan cukup mencuri perhatian tanpa membuat Anda merasa tak nyaman.

    Padukan warna cerah dengan yang netral
    Untuk memberikan sentuhan yang lebih ringan, kenakan satu item dengan warna yang cerah, lalu pilih warna yang netral untuk sisanya. Misalnya, shift dress warna merah, biru, atau oranye pasti akan berpadu sempurna dengan sepatu wedge warna nude.

    Kenakan motif garis dalam warna cerah
    Koleksi L.A.M.B milik Gwen Stefani dan Marc Jacobs sama-sama menampilkan baju terusan dengan motif garis dalam warna seperti biru dan merah. Begitu pula pada koleksi Isabel Marant dan Jil Sander. Anda tinggal memadukannya dengan high heels atau wedges warna nude.

    Pastikan warnanya cocok untuk ke kantor
    Banyak koleksi brand kelas menengah, seperti Zara atau Topshop menawarkan koleksi pakaian yang warnanya menyolok tanpa mengorbankan keseriusannya. Agar tren ini juga bisa dipakai untuk ke kantor, pilih setelan dalam warna-warna yang cerah. Contohnya, ganti blazer Anda yang berwarna biru tua dengan warna biru yang lebih muda. Untuk mengurangi kesan colorful-nya, kenakan dalaman berwarna putih.
